Guide to Near Miss Reporting

A near miss is an unplanned event that did not result in any injury, illness or damage but had the potential to do so. If unchecked, near misses can cause devastating consequences. The Guide to Near Miss Reporting was developed to provide guidance on reporting near misses. It also illustrates how tracking near misses and good practices encourage employees to participate in near miss reporting.
